Steel Success Strategies
Join Midrex at the 36th Steel Success Strategies by Fastmarkets!
High prices, high demand, and technological change – is this steel’s perfect storm?
Are record prices here to stay, or is the next big crash waiting around the corner? There are going to be some winners and losers in the current market. Infrastructure demands from China continue to drive up prices, and with the Biden administration attempting to replicate this in the United States, the market shows no sign of stopping. Supply-demand rebalancing, infrastructure spending, and the race to carbon neutrality have all heightened price volatility alongside the effects of a global pandemic.
